RIP: Dan Lynch
Sad news from Fort Wayne that former Journal Gazette editorial cartoonist Dan Lynch has died.
Dan was on staff when I got there and was genuinely a fun guy to work with. He trundled off to Kansas City for a stint and Steve Sack, now in Minneapolis, took his spot for a bit.
But Dan returned to the Fort Wayne fold, poking fun at the city and its pols (which is kind of like shooting fish in a barrel), until a stroke sidelined him in 2001. I always liked his clean and to the point style.
I hope I still have in my files a couple of Dan's drawings that he graciously shared. Dan and his work will be missed.
